Barbara Greenstein A weathered onion, an old glass bottle, a face that tells a story is the muse that starts my journey. A feminine essence of strength, vulnerability and quest for truth as I paint figments, inspired by life's landscapes, a gesture, a line paves the way for color choices while layering creates areas of rest. I let my paintings inform me, creating a conversation that goes back and forth. Probing, pushing, disrupting and destabilizing as a sense of urgency and commitment command me forward. I want my paintings to resonate, connect and create a relationship communicating visually what words cannot.
